    This is a well maintained community with a great office and maintenance staff. The tenants are a very diverse and friendly group. The garage parking and the washer/dryer in each unit are a big plus, as is the fitness center.

              The building is of good quality. There is very little noise that leaks between units. Kitchen appliances are good quality, but the air conditioners are poorly maintained and outdated.

                        Very well managed building. An absence of the kind of problems encountered in poorly run buildings. Maintenance requests answered quickly, common areas clean and attractive. Very quiet building. Good communication with tenants re snow removal, water shut offs for routine maintenance, etc.

                                            I have lived at Mallard Creek for a year now. I think this is an excellent apartment complex with wonderful, responsive management.

                                              Terrible. There are worse in Charlotte around the university, but not many. There is always overage charge, so don't believe that they don't charge utilities. They charge more to be on upper floor. Try getting your deposit back. Impossible, even if you pay last month… See More >

                                                  Before I had moved in, I was really excited. The place appears to be really nice, awesome new appliances and seemingly nice flooring, comes with furniture, plenty of lighting and it's spacious. When I actually moved in, it was a whole different realm. First of… See More >
